I've been wanting to do a refresher on my girls bows & hair clips for a while, so I looked around for some ideas for stuff to make them and I remembered Lou & Lee.
They have some really really cute stuff (their shop is on vacation right now, but once they're back you can check them out), and I fell in love with these felt bows, so I decided to make some for the girls. Then I got kind of obsessed and made 4 in each color. It's a good start to a Spring/Summer Bow collection- and now here's a Felt Bow Tutorial so you can make your own!
Hot glue Gun
Hot glue sticks
That's it. Easy as pie.
Cut 2 strips of felt- One 7" x 1.5" piece for the body, and one 4" x 1" piece for the center.
Fold the body piece in half hot-dog style and snip the corners off to notch the ends.
Fold the body piece like so:
Add Hot Glue to the center of the fold and the underside of the fold.
Repeat with the other end of the body piece. It should look like this:
Glue one end of the center piece to the back of the body
Wrap the center piece around the front tightly to pinch the middle of the bow and hot glue in back. Trim any excess center strip off.
Clip an alligator clip to a piece of felt and cut around in rectangle. Hot glue to the back side of your bow.
The End. Now go forth and multiply these bows in every color to make your own collection.
